Aaah, no time to write what I want to write when I have assignments to grade. Zzz.
Behold, the “Oiliness Name Pen.”
(It should be “oil-based”, not “oiliness.” hahah)
A conversation on Whatsapp between my youngest sister and me…
Yan: At least I know that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s dad?
Me: But you don’t know who Luke Skywalker is
Yan: He is Hayden Christensen.
Very good-looking chap.
Me: Huh? Luke Skywalker is Hayden Christensen??
Yan: Technically Hayden Christensen is Luke Skywalker.
He’s the actor.
Me: He’s Anakin Skywalker.
Mark Hamill was Luke Skywalker.
Me: This goes on my blog
Yan: I sense this conversation going into your blog.
Omg I knew it
Talk about the impossible connection. Anakin = Vader = Luke’s father, Hayden = Luke, but Hayden = Vader… therefore Hayden is his own father and son? o_O
These Asian brands have such amusing translations for their product names. The one above was seen at Etude House. I didn’t notice it initially but Ee Laine pointed it out. Good thing she did.
Daiso also provides quite a few samples of interesting English product names and such.
I was going to write about something… but then I forgot what it was. 8D
So, just for the heck of it, here’s a vid that Steph showed me. I totally cracked up laughing when watching it. It does require some knowledge of medical terms, but well, I enjoyed it hugely even though we had to pause a couple of times for Dr. Steph to explain the terms to me.
I’ll make it easier and explain a few things right off:
(I don’t need to explain “femur” and “CPR”, do I?)
JW: wat time’s flight

Y: hahahaha (I actually did laugh out loud at this…)
JW: oh i miss talking to MMU girls

no matter how lame
And I’ve missed IT-based jokes.
So my youngest sister was going through my old prom gowns – and Ming’s – to decide whether any of them suited her better than the one she bought recently. She decided that she liked my very first one (which I can’t wear now without feeling mighty uncomfortable and I cannot remember how on earth I managed it back in 2004 – was I that much thinner then? D: ) and surveyed herself in the mirror for a good long while.
Me: Hmm, it fits you.
Yan: Yeah, because I’m fat.
(About two seconds of silence in which Ming and I stare at her and the implication of her words sinks into her mind.)
Yan: NOOOOOO, I DIDN’T MEAN IT LIKE THAT!
*digs out old sketch of the dress*
Perhaps I should have a new category called “Chatlogs” or “World Cup.”
All I did yesterday was catch up with the rest of my Project365 backlog – and thus am now completely up-to-date! (I think I may have overdone it a little with all the rabbits recently… but who cares? I need the cute and cuddly albeit imaginary bunnies that love me and my pencil-sketched characters. ) I felt like blogging but didn’t know what to blog about (nothing that wouldn’t constitute a rant or lament of some sort anyway) and didn’t feel like posting photos either because I wasn’t in the mood to comment on every photo I put up. So I went and hauled up a couple of other amusing chatlogs – both World Cup-related, naturally.
Youngest sister: i support…GERMANY!!!
Yuin: … Ballack isn’t even there
